Description
<p>The genetic code, in DNA letters (T instead of U), and containing amino acids in three representations: full name, 3-letter abbreviation, and 1-letter. Drawn in Inkscape.</p>

<p>How to read the genetic code: start from the center circle and go outwards. So, if the gene has an <b>AGC</b>, that means amino acid <b>serine</b>. A <b>CGA</b> means <b>arginine</b>. And three of the combinations are <b>stop codons</b>, which don't give any amino acid: <b>TAA, TAG, and TGA</b>.</p>
